Welcome to The Queens Dowry, where found treasures have been fashioned into amusing adornments to wear!
Growing up, I watched with fascination of my families artistic sides, someone was always creating; sewn dolls in buttoned down dresses, crocheted blankets, quilts, Halloween costumes, and even a skating rink for us kids just for the fun of it. In the summer the yard boasted a beautiful well tended to garden, which in turn produced abundant blooms for me to delight the teachers with. There was a patio constructed of individually crafted colored cement blocks, refinished furniture, and a decorative metal stand for the fish tank…for if it could be made plans were in the midst!
And so, I made things, lots of them. Now, everything in those early years did not go exactly to plan and I can remember often falling on my expertise…
